Track Name: Endless Love / Early Grave
Never was a man to say a word
Never was the man to take his turn
Never was the one to stop and sight a line in play
Never was the one to want to stay
The well is full of whispered secrets
The prayer is just a coin that you toss down
with charms of gold around your fingers
adding all the minutes you save
and counting on an early grave

Always was a boy of soft neglect
Always was a boy to not reflect
Always was the one to stop side line the play
Always was the one to walk away
a grin and then the false confession
had a dash of Punic Faith
nothing easy that's unwilling
adding all the minutes you save
and counting on an early grave


and fall into an early grave
Track Name: Sallisaw
Where the sun dims yellow
paints like picture day glowing
out in the fields
a red head cartwheels
his back a silhouette black
and eyes on the next tract
says this too will pass and
nothing can last
and i can break your big wall down
break your big wall down
this man that goes before me
and cradles his story
in powerful hands
drug through the sand
says i can fill with stars your crown
fill with stars your crown

still the latest night
dreams of early light
circle again and when it stays to morning into

sudden change in weather
breaks us untogether
and everything
covered in green
falls away too soon
hand forced to move
he turns again
and speaks of when
he will fill with stars your crown
fill with stars your crown
Track Name: Penelope Tree
swing girl
looks just like Penelope Tree
flared skirt
the kind you find on Carnaby Street


sweet bird
buys the latest sensible thing
see her
sparkle on the tip of her wing
finding all the prettiest rings

crushed red velvet at Chelsea
Northern eyes will stare
leaves alone by Lambretta
says she wasn't there


swing girl
fashions in the style of Quant
see her
dancing to amphetamine dawn
Track Name: Birnam's Holiday
Cold rush to the head it's going down ain't no coming around this is feeling I've been dying to know, I've been trying to know
think i start to see red it's slowing down shooting straight for the groud and hit the ceiling
I decided to go

Birnam's holiday in artificial shade
a weekend lost and gone again
eyes shift, furtive glance, solitary dance
from dusk to dawn to dusk again

Cold rush to the head it's going down ain't no coming around this is feeling I've been dying to know, I've been trying to know
think i start to see red it's slowing down shooting straight for the groud and hit the ceiling
I decided to go
Track Name: Blood In The Moon / Warm Wine
your eyes awaken and so remain
the light expression to trip those words
what's holding me a cold stare
has let me go

your soul naked an image swayed
told of you have gifts of golden vein
to scar myself blind
and be myself i can dream
Track Name: The Grand Society
They're equally know for elegance
and a well placed opulence
They follow life in all the latest magazines
and aim the lights paint storyboards to stage the scene
fashion a style and hearts to sell
a dedicated clienetele
they rearrange the rules and calibrate the steps
society hail fellow proper and well met
amongst their ranks there cannot be
a more congenial coterie
fingers clique and champagne crates appear
have conversations the world bends in to hear

the stars align and shine down on you
above they smile on you
Track Name: Something Happening Tonight
the bar opens at noon on the olther side of town
it's a dog day afternoon and the rain is coming down
and i can see the warm half light
is something happening tonight?

the gutter is a river from the window seat
and the cars are streaking silver trail ways in the street
and i can see the lamppost light
is something happening tonight

time is water like the rain here
canvases like Hassam paints
silent as we drink sinner's beer
and by midnight it turns to saint's

the bartender is saving other people's tears
from the bottles and the battles of the hearts he hears
and i can see the half moon light
of something happening tonight
Track Name: The Art Of Misdirection
it's always the same a stranger Sits down at the game
quick always to blame a danger nobody can name
he begins with luck and warm reception
and ends abrupt with cool deception
it's always the same a stranger Sits down at the game
here's the art of misdirection
the slightest sleight escapes detection
and everybody's recollection stirred (and then it's turned)

go Down with the ship all the tight smiles and loose lips
cracking the whip _ knuckles white as they lose grip
deceives and lies like a sailor's morning
well red skies and without warning
go Down with the ship, all the tight smiles and loose lips
fake a fall for sympathetic vote
an apology on a parenthetic note
now you see it now you don't

believe
the lie within belief
charms everyone

one hand combing the wreck and the other is stacking the deck
and if you should check, there's just enough there for your neck
a line of soft and easy invention
draws and quarters your attention
one hand combing the wreck and the other one's stacking the deck

here's the art of misdirection
a flashing smile completes the lesson
and getting up in full possession
leaves
a dazzling leave
Track Name: Sybil
watching through kaleidoscope a perfect circle
puzzle pieces never fit the mold
just before just before the sun is gone

together as one
